Maeve Owens: MV: ::she walks up to Isaac's front
door, holding a frame, and softly knocks on the door. She appears
a little nervous::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::opens the door, smiles when he sees Maeve:: Hi
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles a little:: Hey. ::she holds out the frame:: I came by to give you and the kids this..
Quantum Catz: IS: ::takes it, looking at it, rather sombrely::
Maeve Owens: :::its a copy of the photo Libby had made for Maeve which features all three of their fathers::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: I remember Josh saying he didn't have a picture of his father and I thought that they would like to have one...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks up at Maeve, smiling:: Thanks ::stands back:: You want to come in?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods and walks through the doorway::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::comes running back from school, swinging his bookbag around happily; he just barely stops short of running Maeve down:: Hi!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she laughs as she steps out of his way:: Hey there. You look happy enough. Have a good day at school?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods, grinning:: Every day's a good day if I don't have to have Miss Libby help me with my homework.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she walks through the door a few minutes later, pausing when she sees Maeve but then just turns to wave hello to Isaac before heading to the stairs::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::chuckles:: Aw.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::isn't too far behind Dolly he's walking slowly, and he's been a lot quieter than he used to be since the basilisk incident::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::takes Isaac's hand, looking at what his brother is holding, and he stops still when he sees it, his eyes wide::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::says 'hey' as he enters and then heads for the stairs too::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shifts uneasily when Josh notices the picture then looks up to Isaac, wondering if she should stay or go:::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: It's a picture of Dad with Maeve's and Libby's dads...
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks at Maeve in astonishment:: How'd you get that? Were they all ghosts?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::stops on the stairs and turns to look at them::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shaking her head, she smiles sadly:: From Libby. They met during the war. It's the only picture I have of my father now.... thought you'd want one of yours as well....
YarnKittymon: JH: ::hugs Maeve, hard:: We can set it next to Mom's picture, can't we?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she turns to look at them then slowly makes her way back down the stairs to stand beside Isaac, staring at the picture in shock::
Quantum Catz: IS: :smiles:: Of course we can
Quantum Catz: EK: They knew each other? Really?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances away, hiding a wince brought on by Josh's question while she returns his hug:: Well, your dad said they were friends. They hung out in a cafe together.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::laughs slightly:: They didn't save each other's lives or anything?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shrugs:: He didn't go into details...
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks at Isaac:: Does that make Miss Richards our aunt or anything?
Quantum Catz: IS: Well it doesn't make us related...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles a little at Josh's question. She watches Eli for a few seconds before her expression becomes serious; softly:: I guess I ought to say thanks, Eli. I heard that if it wasn't for you I'd still be stone right now.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks down, but not without a quick glance at Isaac first:: It was Mr Chalmers and Mr Lange, really
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles weakly:: Thats not how Libby or Toby tell it.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs:: It doesn't matter - i had to make sure Isaac came back, that's all - i'm going up to my room now ::turns and heads up the stairs::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::smiles again; softly:: He was just as worried as me and Dolly.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::glancing at Maeve before turning to watch Eli leave:: I don't think he really wants to talk about it - either that or he's afraid i'll be annoyed at him if he starts boasting about risking his life
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods:: Well, I don't blame him. For him, there was a lot at stake. ::she smiles a little at Isaac as she turns towards the door:: I guess I should be getting home then... YarnKittymon: JH: You can stay! I'm sure Dolly doesn't mind making supper for you too.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances uncertaintly at Dolly then Isaac, but when she speaks her gaze lingers on the stairs:: I wouldn't want to intrude...
Maeve Owens: DK: ::softly:: I wouldn't mind. ::she shrugs, looking up at Isaac like its really his decision::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::glances at the stairs and then says softly:: I think he's got other things on his mind right now - i don't think it'll bother him. Really, please stay
YarnKittymon: JH: ::grins at Maeve:: After you brought us that picture, it's the least we can do, right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she halts her progress to the door and faces them again.:: Well, then maybe we should invite Libby too since without her none of us would have that picture. ::grins a little::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: I guess it is only fair
YarnKittymon: JH: ::grins at Maeve:: You met my dad too, right? When you were stone? Did you like him? Did he like you?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods:: Yes I met him, and he seemed very nice. He misses all of you very much.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she takes one last look at the picture before heading into the kitchen to start dinner::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::quietly:: Even me? He never met me.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she winces, then tries to cover it with a sad smile. She reaches up to squeeze his shoulder:: I'm sorry Josh... ::starts to say something else but looks to Isaac instead::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles at Josh:: He's watching you, i'm sure - if it had been you needing help, i'm sure he'd've done it just as gladly
YarnKittymon: JH: ::smiles at his brother, warmly, then pauses:: Should I go do my homework now?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smirks:: What do you think?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::grins:: Well, I was gonna do it *sometime*. But I guess you two want to be alone.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::bites back a laugh::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: We're already together, Josh, you don't have to keep up with the matchmaking
YarnKittymon: JH: ::smiles:: Well, I'll come back out if I have any trouble, OK?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: Yeah, okay
YarnKittymon: JH: ::grins and then takes his books back into his bedroom::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::is quite done with this shy business and she boldy steps up to Isaac, wrapping her arms around his waist and nestling herself into his arms with her head on his shoulder; simply:: Hello.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles as he puts his arms around her:: Hey there
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after Maeve and Isaac have
had about an hour together, she knocks on the door, smiling, and
Quantum Catz: IS: ::goes to open the door:: Hey, Libby - we were just talking about going over to invite you for dinner
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Oh, I'd be thrilled to...but what's the occasion?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::when she hears that its Libby, she moves closer to the door::
Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve brought us a copy of that picture of our dads - we figured we at least owed you dinner for it
YarnKittymon: LB: ::still smiling, though there's a bit of anxiety in it; she looks around and lowers her voice:: Can the kids hear us?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she's in the kitchen and they can smell chicken baking in the oven. They might be able to hear her cutting up potatoes but other than that she isn't making much noise::
Quantum Catz: IS: Well Dolly might - the other two are upstairs
YarnKittymon: LB: ::flushing:: We'll just keep our voices down, then. ::looks at Maeve and then Isaac, hesitant to speak::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns:: Why? Whats wrong?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs slightly:: Please don't tell anyone yet...I don't want the town to know...::whispers::...but Jack and I are expecting.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::lets out a small yelp of surprise but quickly clamps a hand over her mouth. Then whispers:: Oh Libby that wonderful! ::she comes closer to carefully hug her friend:: When?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: Congratulations, Libby
Maeve Owens: DK: ::the cutting noise in the kitchen pauses for a moment but then continues::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles warmly at the both of them; quietly:: I guess sometime in October...long story how we found out, but the midwife confirmed it.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles:: Well that great. ::she laughs:: You know, I had a sneaking suspicion you were keeping something from me.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Well, we had no idea until...well, until after Halloween. I'm going to try to be on the mainland when it happens, so you won't have to worry about it, Isaac.
Quantum Catz: IS: Well i'm always here if you need me - though i'd like to hope you never do
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods; softly:: I appreciate it.
Maeve Owens: MV: Are you going to stay for dinner? Because, I for one, would like to hear the rest of what I missed during my stoning. ::she grins::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::grins:: Sure, I'll stay. ::more quietly:: As long as you don't say anything about me eating for two. ::laughs::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she laughs:: My lips are sealed.
YarnKittymon: LB: So, we're having chicken tonight? ::looks towards the kitchen:: I hope we didn't disturb Dolly in there.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: I'd offer to go help her but I'd likely only be in the way... ::she shrugs, smiling at her own uselessness.::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: You're not so bad. Although it was a big help having her around...it was so nice to come home to a hot meal every day.
